My latest ink is Diamine Turquoise
As I said in my review for Diamine Havasu Turquoise
I have been collecting turquoise inks and samples since I bought a bottle of Caran d'Ache Caribbean Sea. There are several inks that are a good alternative for that deleted ink. The best match I have found so far is Kaweco Paradise Blue and I will be posting a review of that ink soon.
Diamine Turquoise is another good replacement if you want a blue turquoise. It's lighter and comes across as slightly less saturated than Havasu Turquoise, and that makes it more like a turquoise ink than a sky blue ink. I'm not sure you would need both Havasu Turquoise and Turquoise in one ink collection though.
- Although this isn't a waterproof ink, it shows good water resistance, as do many turquoise inks.
- Bearing in mind the paper I use is thick with a shiny surface, and I used a Lamy M nib, this ink took 16-18 secs to dry.
- It flows through the pen very well and lubricates the nib very well. I saw no skips or hard starts while I did swabs and dry time tests.
- It is currently available in 80ml glass bottles, 30ml plastic refill bottles or International sized cartridges.
- Diamine sell it directly to end-users on their web-site.
- It's a reasonable price.
